My 80+ parents were visiting from the US and I was looking for something different but cozy. The Apple Loft was perfect. From the warm welcome from Mel to the daily visits from Roger and/or Liz for the chats, I couldn't have asked for more. Dad the insomniac slept great, the place was always warm despite the chill outside. Conveniently...

Peace, tranquility, homeliness, friendship, welcome especially homemade scones with butter and jam on our arrival. The only trip that is better than this trip is the next trip to the cottage. We are counting the days.

Just had a great break with the kids in Apple Loft cottage. Beautiful cottage in a great location which is secure for the kids and so tranquil. The perfect place to relax and just a short walk from both Laytown and Bettystown - we spent hours on the beach!

We had the good fortune recently to stay in The Cottages (specifically the Garden Cottage) in Bettystown recently. What can I say? From the minute we drove through the big brown gates we marvelled at the care and time spent on the gardens and beautiful walk down to the beach. Children spent a lovely time in and out of the...
